Patience Jonathan

Patience Jonathan, wife of former President Goodluck Jonathan is claiming that her account which was frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission contains $10m.

Mrs Jonathan according to PUNCH made the claim in a statement signed by her spokesman, Mr. Sam Dokubo, on Wednesday.

Parts of the statement read, “For the avoidance of doubt, while indeed it is true that Dame Patience is in court for the protection of her fundamental rights infringed upon by a ‘No debit order’ placed on her funds by the EFCC, it is not for $15m but for funds less than $10m as has been clarified several times.
